Soundtracks: “Chronicle”

Posted by on

Three high school pals play pranksters after they acquire mysterious powers in director Josh Trank’s “Chronicle,” but hijinks turn to tragedy when their darker impulses come to the fore. The film, out at the end of this week, used no composer to help create it’s mood switches, that job fell entirely to music supervisor, Andrea von Foerster.

“There’s no score in the film and all songs are used as source music,” von Foerster explained. “When Josh Trank and I discussed the music for ‘Chronicle’ we knew we wanted it to be cool, diverse and mostly indie.  Artists such as Deastro, MNDR and A B & The Sea were early favorites.”

Von Foerster, whose credits include music supervision on “(500) Days of Summer” and “It’s Kind of a Funny Story,” was also responsible for the music in the prematurely canceled, “Stargate Universe,” a show of truly surprising quality and the best science fiction series since “Battlestar Galactica.”

“We set our sights high to license Jessie J’s ‘Price Tag’ for Matt’s hilarious car singing scene and David Bowie’s classic ‘Ziggy Stardust’ in a dark scene where Andrew lashes out,” Von Foerster said. You can see part of that car singing scene in the trailer below. Mini spoiler here: “We were extremely excited to add M83’s ‘This Bright Flash’ to close out our film in the end titles. We wanted the music in Chronicle to accurately reflect the varied musical tastes of high schoolers (and ourselves).”

 


 

“Music From the Motion Picture Chronicle” is out on Milan Records, the film opens this Friday, February 3rd via 20th Century Fox.  Here’s the full track list:

1. Blonde Acid Cult – “Calypso”
2. The Longcut – “Tell You So”
3. Bad Veins – “Gold and Warm”
4. A B & The Sea – “Bone Dry”

5 Times Maron’s Dave Anthony Had the Perfect Response

Maron returns May 4th at 9P on IFC.

Posted by on

Dave Anthony, standup and podcaster extraordinaire, has stealthily become a one-liner machine on Maron, playing Marc’s deadpan “frenemy.” While Dave may often say the wrong thing, we always seem to relate to him in some secret, shameful way. Before you catch Dave on the season premiere of Maron this Wednesday, May 4th at 9P, check out a few times it felt like he was living our life — and messing it up just as much as we are.

1. That moment when we realize no one is listening to our podcast.

2. Or when we remember that feelings are just nature’s way of saying it’s time to eat more ice cream.

3. That feeling you get when you realize you’ll do anything if someone else is paying.

4. For those times when we want to fight the power.

5. And of course, for those times when we realize that life is about accomplishing the little things.
